Hi guys, this 67 I am playing with is currently a manual steer car and I bought a p/s steering box for it. I was wondering how you bolt up the 4 bolt p/s box to a 3 hole m/s frame. Do any of the existing holes match up to the new box? do you have to drill any or what? Also I know the pitman arms are different from m/s to p/s but are the center links also different or will my existing one work with a p/s pitman arm?

Thanks guys! Danny

There was a thicker center link for big block and air cond camaros that was used in the later years.
A small block can do fine with the standard center link.
The four bolt box only uses three holes on a Camaro application. The same three holes as a manual box.
Ihave more info on my page below.

Hey Midnight.. your going to love the PS when you get it. I just did a conversion on my 67 and it works great. you will need a new rag joint for PS as well. the shaft on the manual box is smaller than on the PS. you will need a new pittman arm for PS as well.
